Application conditions The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of air must be at least +5 °C and the relative humidity of air below 80 % during the application and drying.
Preparation New unpainted surfaces:
Remove dirt, mould and loose particles from the surface. Wash down dirty and mouldy surfaces with Tikkurila Mould Removal solution according to the instructions. Prime with Valtti Pohjuste or Valtti Akvabase priming oil in as early construction phase as possible. Protect rusting metal parts like nail heads with Rostex Super anti-corrosion paint. Remove loose resin from knots. Prime surfaces once with Ultra Primer or Öljypohja Oil Primer. Finish with Ultra Lux House Paint 1-2 times. Treat the end grains carefully.
Factory- primed and previously treated surfaces:
Remove dirt, mould and loose particles from the surfaces. Remove loose paint with scraper and brush the surface clean with a steel brush. Wash down dirty and mouldy surfaces with Tikkurila Mould Removal according to the instructions. Treat bare wooden surfaces with Valtti Pohjuste or Valtti Akvabase priming oil and prime them once with Ultra Primer or Öljypohja Oil Primer.
Treat factory-primed surfaces in good condition with Ultra Primer (factory-primed surfaces that have been exposed to weathering over 10 months should be treated with Öljypohja Oil Primer), then finish with Ultra Lux House Paint 1-2 times.
Treat surfaces previously painted with oil paint or acrylate paint 1-2 times with Ultra Lux House Paint. If the old surface is worn out, prime the old oil paint surface with Öljypohja Oil Primer, and the old acrylate paint surface with Ultra Primer. Finish with Ultra Lux House Paint.
Painting Stir the paint well before use and thin with water if necessary. Apply by brush or airless spray. Apply carefully on end-grain. Make sure you have enough paint stirred in one can for one uniform surface to avoid colour differences.
There is resin and other coloring extractives in the wood, particularly in knots. They may cause discoloration or seepage of resin through the paint surface as a result of temperature and humidity fluctuations. Use of primer (Öljypohja or Ultra Primer) reduces the seepage through the paint film.

Varying roughness of wood surface can give an appearance of uneven gloss.
Cleaning of tools Clean tools with water. To remove hardened paint, Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tikkurila Tool Cleaner) is recommended.
Maintenance instructions Handle the surface with care, ultimate durability and hardness is reached in approx. 4 weeks under normal circumstances. After treatment, the surface can be cleaned with a soft brush, a damp cleaning cloth or a mop.
Earliest after 1 month from painting a soiled surface can be cleaned with Huoltopesu (1 part of Huoltopesu to 10 parts of water). Clean stains and very dirty surfaces with a stronger Huoltopesu solution (1:1). Rinse well and allow to dry.
Maintenance treatment Maintenance painting: Ultra Lux can be re-painted with the house paints of Ultra serie or with Pika-Teho House Paint.
